Event description

Description

The Centre for Learning and Development in conjunction with St James’s Hospital, will host its inaugural Obesity Care Conference on Friday the 17th of November within the Trinity Health Sciences Building on the grounds of St James’s Hospital.

Recent figures indicate that Ireland’s prevalence of obesity is set to exceed that of almost all other European countries within the next decade. This is likely to increase the demand for both medical and surgical interventions that arise out of ill health and disease associated with chronic obesity. This trend presents a challenge to healthcare providers and facilities striving to plan and provide dignified, safe and effective care of persons with obesity as well as prevent and treat the underlying causes of this condition.

Our understanding of obesity has advanced significantly in recent years. The aim of this conference is to create an opportunity to disseminate new scientific knowledge related to obesity and create an opportunity for debate and discussion on the subject of obesity care in Ireland.

Expert speakers will include Professor Carel Le Roux (University College Dublin), Professor Francis Finucane (University Hospital Galway), Professor Donal O’ Shea (St Vincent’s University Hospital), Professor Ivan Perry (University College Cork), Professor John Reynolds (Trinity College/St James’s Hospital), Dr. Karl Neff (Kings College Hospital), and Professor Alexandra Blakemore of Brunel University. We will also have contributions from leading therapeutic professionals to include bariatric surgery, dietetics, physiotherapy and psychology.

This event will be open to all healthcare professionals with an interest in obesity care, managers and planners of healthcare services.

This one-day event is awaiting CPD accreditation. For further information please contact: obesitycare@stjames.ie
